Trevor Sinclair raved about West Ham right-back Vladimir Coufal, when speaking during an appearance on talkSPORT yesterday (October 23rd, 09:20).
The 28-year-old joined the Hammers earlier this month from Slavia Prague for around £5 million (The Guardian).
And Coufal has already proved to be a huge hit with the West Ham fans.
Like his compatriot Tomas Soucek, the Czech Republic international seems to have taken to the Premier League like a duck to water.
The 28-year-old already seems to be a big upgrade on Ryan Fredericks. And for just £5 million, Coufal will undoubtedly go on to look like an absolute steal for the Hammers.
And Trevor Sinclair raved about the experienced defender, when speaking to talkSPORT yesterday (October 23rd, 09:20):
“Playing three at the back – (Vladimir) Coufal has come in and done a superb job – the balance looks superb.”
David Moyes has received plenty of stick from the West Ham fans for his dithering manner during the transfer window.
But he deserves a lot of credit for getting the deal to sign Coufal over the line with the minimum of fuss.
Let’s hope that the Czech goes on to enjoy a successful career at the London Stadium. The fans already love the 28-year-old’s attitude.
And if Coufal continues to display the quality that he has done already, he could go on to become a cult hero in east London.
